Spirit Score Four Goals in Comeback and Earn Road Win

The Washington Spirit (4-8-4, 15 pts) stormed back from a 1-0 halftime deficit with four unanswered goals in the second half to defeat Sky Blue FC (7-8-2, 23 pts) 4-1 on Friday night at Yurcak Field in Piscataway, NJ.

After Sky Blue took an early lead in just the second minute on a point blank strike from Maya Hayes assisted by Daphne Corboz, the Spirit defense held strong the rest of the game while four different players found the net in the second half onslaught. Rookie forward Arielle Ship scored her first professional goal and assisted the next two Spirit scores in a breakout performance.
